Friday Night Book Porn! A Few Hours Late...

Okay... I'm sorry the porn is late, but I started a new job yesterday and went to the DMV and dinner with my family and shopping and all I had time to do was take off my make-up and pass out from exhaustion.

Anyway, here's your book fix:
I found it on spotcoolstuff.com. This is the El Ateneo bookstore in Buenos Aires.It began life as a grand theater. The first movie with sound was shown to a public audience in these walls, which are now beautifully lined with books. Apparently, there is a cafe on what used to be the stage.

You can see more hot bookstores here.
